HC Deb 20 June 1951 vol 489 c59W
88. Brigadier Smyth

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he is now in a position to make a statement on the claim of the British Far Eastern prisoners of war for compensation from the Japanese.

Mr. H. Morrison

No, but as stated on Monday in a written answer to the hon. and gallant Member for Lewes (Major Beamish), it is hoped that this particular question can be dealt with fully in the course of a debate on the whole Japanese peace treaty when the draft treaty is published in the near future.
